  • Always Bet on JS: A merger of the Browser and Operating System
  • Time Wednesday @ 11:40am | Room N-124

Firefox OS stands to make the web a first class player on mobile. Break free of the walled gardens, and make great apps in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. In this talk, we will go over how developers can get started developing apps that run great on Firefox OS, and how tools like Firefox's Developer Tools and the Firefox OS Simulator can lend a hand to the development process. We'll also touch upon how the mobile web differs from the always on, always connected web developers have targeted in the past.
